How does the genome build the brain? Can the genome be used as a molecular tool to study brain development directly in humans? What are the origins of brain tumors? And can newly developed genomics technologies be deployed more rapidly and reliably in clinical medicine?
Our mission is to develop foundational new technologies for neuroscience and human genetics that will advance our understanding of diseases of the brain. We also aim to accelerate the implementation of genomics in clinical medicine, especially for children with rare undiagnosed diseases.
We are part of the new Center for Human Genetics & Genomics at New York University School of Medicine, and are affiliated with the Institute for Systems Genetics, the Neuroscience Institute, the Department of Pediatrics, and the Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital.
Toby Aicher (MSTP student) was awarded the Vilcek MSTP Scholar Award!
Congratulations to Marta on receiving a T32 training fellowship!
Adam Schwing (MSTP student) has passed his PhD qualifying exam!
Congratulations to Danielle on her acceptance to NYU Medical School!
We have launched the NYU Pediatric Undiagnosed Diseases Program. This program’s mission is to find diagnoses for children with rare genetic diseases.
